So now Mumsnet deletes posts on the grounds that they're offensive to people with religious beliefs and MRA's

On the circumcision thread a post of mine was deleted and when I asked mumsnet why, this was the response:

"While it is true that posts we don't tend to delete posts on the grounds of being in poor taste because it would be really hard to draw the line; we do as in this case remove posts that, in our judgement, are simply beyond the pale.

Your post was reported to us and tbh we felt that * (an offensive acronym for MRA's) was beyond the pale tbh, especially when added to the rest of your post which was also incredibly offensive to anyone with religious beliefs."

So basically, we are not allowed to post things which offend people's religious beliefs in conjunction with offending MRA's.

Just thought I'd let you all know. I'm not even annoyed about this, after last week's targeting I think it's obvious that MN really don't want radical feminism represented here.

You wouldn't laugh if you'd seen them. blush

<arf> at the library fines smile

LRDtheFeministDragon Mon 18-Feb-13 01:14:38

I haven't graduated from my master's yet. I still owe them my library fines. I think it will seem real enough.

runningforthebusinheels Mon 18-Feb-13 01:12:27

Oh, you have to go graduation LRD - it won't seem real otherwise.

Will it be DrLRD...?

LRDtheFeministDragon Mon 18-Feb-13 01:05:11

Impressive, running. grin

I'm not going to my graduation. I can't imagine anything worse. I'll change my MN name to Dr though.

Good night smile

You'll be like the cat that got the cream when you finish that thesis, LRD. smile

LineRunner Mon 18-Feb-13 01:02:19

We're all coming to your graduation, LRD. Whether you like it or not.

LineRunner Mon 18-Feb-13 01:01:00

Anyway, I can see Fastidia's POV.

Don't look for a pun. I ran out.

LRDtheFeministDragon Mon 18-Feb-13 01:00:46

You know, I am going to have to finish that bloody thesis just so that I can stop you saying that! grin

Night fastidia.

LineRunner Mon 18-Feb-13 00:59:21

This is usually the bit where I say, 'LRD, don't you have a thesis to finish?' but that would be queening it.

runningforthebusinheels Mon 18-Feb-13 00:58:22

This may make the goaders paws for thought though....

FastidiaBlueberry Mon 18-Feb-13 00:58:20

LOL you two are making me larf.

But it's terribly late and I need a cat-nap soon...

LRDtheFeministDragon Mon 18-Feb-13 00:56:01

<groans at self>

LRDtheFeministDragon Mon 18-Feb-13 00:55:52

Stop littering up the thread with silly puns, now.

runningforthebusinheels Mon 18-Feb-13 00:54:02

You should be feline vindicated, OP grin

It's like you're David Attenborough narrating there.
